Lenin and the Art of the Impossible

The Tree of Woe contemplates the impossibility of revolution:

Every rock star began as a long-haired freak in a garage with a dream of a record deal and groupies. Every best-selling author began as a would-be writer being told that no one buys books. Every successful entrepreneur began by faking it until he made it. Every revolutionary began as a nobody. None of them had the odds on their side. Victory wasn’t assured; it wasn’t even plausible; it was so unlikely as to seem impossible! It was all a LARP… until it wasn’t.¹

The reason so many successful actors, musicians, and politicians are narcissists is that in order to become a highly successful actor, musician, or politician, you have to take long shots against long odds. Often the only people who take long shots against long odds are the people who are self-deluded enough to think they’re better than all the others who tried and failed.

People like Lenin.

Lenin was a self-deluded nobody. He was a loser. He had accomplished virtually nothing with his life except a stint in the gulag. He was nowhere near as influential as the well-established figures who currently are prominent among the dissident right. He wasn’t even… Nick Fuentes.

But Lenin he changed the world. Sure, he changed it for the worse — but he changed it. And so could we.

The advantage we have as Christian Nationalists presently subject to the wicked madness of Clown World is that we know, as Bob Marley said, Babylon is going to fall. Its fall is absolutely 100-percent guaranteed, because Clown World is a rebellion against God, God’s Law, and God’s Creation. It is a rebellion against morality, mathematics, Nature, and physics, and as such, it cannot possibly be sustained.

It is our job to be the hard place upon which Clown World shatters. Because Clown World is caught between a rock and a hard place, and the rock, being Jesus Christ, isn’t going to break.
